Dopaminergic modulation of the autonomic nervous system: in vitro and in vivo evidence from the mouse
(East Carolina University, 2012)
Central nervous system (CNS) function depends on both the connections between the underlying neurons and neural circuits and their activity. Neuronal activity in turn can be classified as neurotransmission and neuromodulation, ...
Matrix Metalloproteinase 12 is Critical for Granuloma Formation in the Murine Model of Granulomatous disease
(East Carolina University, 2019-08-16)
Matrix Metalloproteinase 12 (MMP12) is a protein produced primarily by alveolar macrophages that degrades elastin in the extracellular matrix (ECM) and enables infiltration of immune cells that participate in the inflammatory ...
Macrophage Regulation in the Murine Inflammatory Response
(East Carolina University, 2018-08-30)
The development of acute and chronic liver disease is a complex condition involving the dysregulation of hepatic metabolism and the accumulation of critical immune cells; specifically, the recruitment and activation of ...
Peroxisome Proliferator-Activated Receptor Gamma Deficiency Promotes a T Lymphocyte Response in a Murine Model of Chronic Pulmonary Sarcoidosis
(East Carolina University, 2019-07-03)
Sarcoidosis is a chronic granulomatous disease of unknown etiology. Previous studies from our lab have shown a deficiency of the nuclear transcription factor peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor gamma (PPAR[gamma]) ...
30-Day Immunotoxicity Study of PFMOAA in C57BL/6 Mice
(East Carolina University, 2019-07-18)
Within the past five years, two classes of per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) were phased out of production in the U.S., which led to the development and production of PFAS to replace these two major classes. One ...
